POLICE are appealing for information after a wheelie bin with a beer keg inside was recovered.

Last Monday, officers arrested two men on suspicion of theft in Borthwick Road, Boscombe.

Investigations Officer Adam Carter, of Bournemouth Police, said: “A full beer keg found inside of a wheelie bin has been recovered by police – both believed to have been stolen.

“I am now in a position to release an image of these recovered items.

“I am appealing to anyone who has found a beer keg to be missing or has lost a wheelie bin to come forward.

“It is possible that these may have been taken in a burglary.”

Two men, one 35 from Bournemouth, and one 40 of no fixed abode, have been arrested and released on police bail.

Call police on 101, quoting incident number 20:14, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Let's see how many nutters try to claim the bin.
They wanted the keg as a doorstop for the one who has a gaff.

I'm guessing that they were found with other stuff that probably wasn't theirs - cash, jewellery. But a full keg of beer is fairly distinctive, so it's probably the easiest thing to identify with it's owner. Even a busy publican should notice eventually ....
